My Prayer for You August 2017

31 July 2017

I pray that you, as child of God, will realise that you are a new generation. Your past has been wiped away, and you are given a fresh start.Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17) I pray that you will know there awaits no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus... Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2)

JESUS-film Outreach Piketberg, Western Cape

During 16-22 July, three men, Daniel van Coller, Jannie Marais & myself, reached out to farm workers in the Piketberg area with the Jesus-Film in Afrikaans, their own language. Despite the cold nights, many people attended the shows and received Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. We also showed “Magdalena” at the retirement home, with amazing results. A variety of other short films were also shown.

In total we ministered 12 times. Nearly 900 people attended!

As always, we showed the film over 3 evenings, each with a different emphasis:

  • First night - emphasis on ‘Evangelism’. People were given an opportunity to accept Christ Jesus as personal Saviour and Lord.
  • Second evening - focus on ‘Assurance of Salvation’. Opportunity to be sure that Jesus came into their lives.
  • Third evening - Important secret of the Christian life: “What happens when I sin?”. Teaching and practical application of how to do ‘Spiritual Breathing’ (confession of sins).

At this stage the positive evidence of the impact of 3 consecutive evenings of ministry could clearly be seen.
At the end of each evening ample opportunity were given to pray for individual needs.

Praise God for open hearts! Pray for the follow-up that are being done on an ongoing base.

There is still much work to be done. God willing, we are going back in September 2017.
